#mswl I adore close, soulmate-style friendships in stories, but I also love stories about having the courage to distance yourself from unhealthy friendships. I welcome stories with best friend breakups.

There are not nearly enough YA mysteries in my inbox. I want stories full of secrets and intricately woven storylines with friendship/enemies/romance at the core.

Think: Pretty Little Liars, One of Us is Lying, Revenge, Twisted, The Lying Game

I can't wait to read yours! #mswl

Packing up my house, stumbled upon my collection of mix CDs from friends & exes, all up in my feelings. How influential were mix CDs in who we turned out to be??? I would read the hell out of a mix CD-themed friendship story with a nostalgic vibe rn. Make me cry. #MSWL

YA: the MC needs to have a strange interest that teaches me something new. I don't do super heavy (sexual assault, addiction, abuse, suicide), and I like to laugh. Not a good fit for sad w/o humor. Quirky voice gets me every time. I love female friendship/empowerment and spooks.

Friends I have watched almost the entire 1st season of Haikyu!! and I cannot believe I've slept on it for this long. So good!! 🏐

Also I #MSWL the heck out of these friendships & rivalries! I want more strong bonds, relationships that evolve & friends that make mistakes & learn together.

More characters who'll never stop fighting for their dreams because they know their friends are there to support them.

The Babysitters Club is making me crave cute contemporary MG. Anyone have a MS or GN about friendships or first crushes? #mswl

#MSWL I’m DESPERATELY NEEDING a YA or adult romance where a sweet couple falls in love—no insta love. I want to see their journey, whether it’s f/f, m/m, f/ is love. I just want ❤️ and laughter and kindness with lots of friends and family and community.

A magic school book similar to IN OTHER LANDS. Give me your queer and/or POC protags, your questions of morality, how society should function, fluid gender dynamics, your charming creatures, painful growing up, learning to belong swoony romance, and enduring friendships. #MSWL

Platonic friendship stories, a la The Half of It. Even if one side kind of likes the other, the friendship here is what really drove this story home, and the sacrifices and compromises they made in order to keep it and do right by each other. MORE please. ❤️ #MSWL

What am I missing in my inbox?
1. I want smushy sweet romance that makes me tear up when I read--like LOVE, VICTOR or LOVE, SIMON or RED WHITE and ROYAL BLUE.
2. I want relationships that are full of friendship and happiness, especially written with a cast of diverse characters.

#MSWL a MG adventure featuring a kid and his/her/their dog. Can be fantasy or not, but I want the friendship between child and canine to be front and center

The song drinking games by Silver Sphere is exactly the kind of vibe I want in queer friendships and queer romances in YA and queer Adult romance #mswl (Can y’all tell by now that I want to read stories about “misfit” friend groups????!??)
